  • Deb Davenport, SA, CSM, CSPO

    Director of Client Success

    “My favorite aspect of working in the staffing industry is that, every day, I get to bring great talent together with great clients to help people find meaningful work and companies achieve their business goals,” said Deb.

    As a 20+ year veteran of staffing, outsourcing and business consulting, Deb has worked with all sizes and types of companies -- from entrepreneurial start-ups to multi-national companies across many industries (Banking/Finance/Fintech, Retail/eCommerce, Manufacturing, O&G, Utilities, Education, Non-Profits, Hospitality, Transportation/Travel, DoD/Government, Healthcare, Pharma, Medical Devices, Insurance…).

    She attributes her success in building client loyalty to her sincere curiosity about their business and taking the time to listen and understand the “big picture,” then finding the right talent to help clients further their goals. She admits one of her faults (and as it turns out, virtues) is not being able to accept term, “we can’t do that…” Deb remarked, “I ultimately swap that statement for the question, “how can we do that…” and then I work with others to find a solution.”

    Deb is a former certified SPHRM and holds current certifications as an Agile Scrum Master (CSM), Agile Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) and Scaled Agile Framework Agilist (SA). She’s a fan of “The Lean Start-up,” by Eric Ries, especially as it applies to entering new markets and launching new offerings. She strives to operate as a servant leader for clients, candidates and teammates.
